Well what a day it was. There was some pre-gig drama preceding the event, but the day proved to be a roaring success in it's execution. And if only more people had turned up, but those that did seemed to have a good time and were very friendly giving a lot of support and encouragement.
The event started with the Geigertek set and despite a few bum notes (which no-one seemed to notice), it went very well and if the compliments I received afterwards were anything to go by, it went down well with the audience. I was joined on two tracks in the opening section of the set by Code Indigo's guitarist/bassist, Nigel Turner-Heffer, who played some absolutely blinding lead guitar - huge thanks to him for his invaluable contribution. The Geigertek set list was as follows:
1. The Theme from The Avengers (yes, you read right and it was the Emma Peel version with the horn stabs and trumpet solo)
2. The Gift of Goodbye Part 1 (from "The Timeless Mind")
3. In Another Light (from "The Timeless Mind" with Nigel Turner-Heffer on lead guitar)
4. Spirit-Walking (from "The Timeless Mind" with Nigel Turner-Heffer on lead guitar)
5. Between Two Worlds (from "The Garden")
6. The Stirring of Echoes (from "The Timeless Mind")
7. The Rivered Moon (from "The Garden")
8. Songbird Bathing In Blue (from "The Garden")
9. Excerpts (a medley of pieces from the forth-coming "Soundtrack For City Living" CD)
10. The Sculpture and the Wall (from "The Garden")
11. Fast Lane (from the forth-coming "Soundtrack For City Living")
I was very pleased to be able to play new material from what was the pending Geigertek album "Soundtrack For City Living" which was released in the following October, I was also happy to be able to "re-do" a couple of tracks from "The Garden". The Geigertek set had a terrific video back drop, created by the awesomely clever Dave Massey, which featured some of my Urban Exploration images.
Now, this wasn't to be my only performance on this day. Oh no. I had time for a drink and a change of clothing before I was back on stage with David Wright where we performed a Callisto set. Decked out in matching blue shirts, David and I tore through tracks from the Nyx album and also the first Callisto album, Signal To The Stars. Another set that was very well received and once again, I had a great time performing the music of a group I have a lot of respect for and whose music I enjoy.
It was then time for David Wright's solo set, always a pleasure to watch and listen, and then we had something to eat before yet another change of clothing, this time into black shirt and black suit before heading back onto the stage for a third time as part of Code Indigo. The set went down a storm and for the second time that day, I was pleased to be playing as part of a group that I had been following for a number of years before I joined the AD Music roster.
